Make a donation

There are lots of ways you can choose to make a donation and show your support. Whether you make a one-off donation online, give in-person at one of our cash and contactless donation points or choose to pay what you wish for your exhibition visit. You can also become a Friend or join The Marlay Group. 

The vital income generated through your donations helps us deliver all areas of our work, and every donation makes a big difference.
